Are you all sick of me talking about movies yet.
I hope not.
I can't really help it. It is THAT time of year and all. Here's one for your NetFlicks or Family Video list.
This came out in 2008 and BW and I went to the theatre to see it. It was just recently on HBO and we watched it again. It reminded me of how much I liked this movie and my surprise that more people haven't seen it.
It's just a charming little movie and Frances McDormand and Amy Adams are just wonderful in it. Set in London, just prior to World War II, Amy Adams plays Delysia Lafosse, a young and somewhat flighty nightclub singer, determined to become a star. Frances McDormand plays Guinivere Pettigew, a down on her luck unemployed governess who maneuvers herself into a job as Delysia's social secretary. A social whirlwind of music, romance and cocktails commences.
Put this on your list. I think you'll like it.
Disclaimer: My mother didn't care for this movie. Amy Adams' character talks pretty fast and I think she missed some of the dialogue. But then this disclaimer needs a disclaimer. Mom didn't like Love Actually. So, I'm not so sure that her vote should turn you away from the lovely Miss Pettigrew.
